Yes, OK it need some cleanups in other places as well.

Yes this stuff looks really cool, but unfortunately in our case it is not
so easy to remove the different IO functions for MMIO and PIO, since for
MMIO the chip use a flat register model, for PIO it use indirect addressing
via only 2 ports, one for the register offset and one for the data IO.

Maybe we can use the trick from lib/iomap.c to detect which
kind of IO is needed, but unfortunately PIO_OFFSET, PIO_MASK and
PIO_RESERVED are not exported so it would need to copy the defines, which
isn't a really clean solution.
